Chris Smither

When: Sat., March 22, 8 p.m. 2014

Chris Smither says of his finger-picked guitar style that it’s “one third Lightnin’ Hopkins, one third Mississippi John Hurt and one third me.” Having maintained this approach to the acoustic blues for the past 40 years, the singer-songwriter shuns slick studio tricks in favor of pared-down songs driven by his distinct, raspy voice. Distilling the essence of his New Orleans roots and the 1960s folk scene into a sound all his own, Smither remains accessible to a multigenerational fan base. With 15 albums to his name, the time-tested talent shows no signs of slowing down.

Price: $25-27.
